I have been a proud and loyal ADA member dentist for over 40 years. I love and respect this association for its glorious past and promising future.
I have been fortunate to enjoy the private practice of the profession, to work as a federal services dentist, to serve as a board examiner, to teach students and residents, to treat the underserved and to serve in the organized profession.
I am an attentive and empathetic listener. I always try my best to see everyone else’s point of view. I am not afraid to go across the aisle seeking consensus for the common good. I pride myself on being a successful mediator and having worked with leaders of all types.
After more than 30 years of extremely proud, enjoyable service as a volunteer (more than 20 of these as a member of the ADA House of Delegates), having held numerous leadership positions across the ADA tripartite and in other national dental associations, I am ready to serve the ADA, its HOD and every ADA member dentist as one of its vice presidents.
I am committed to helping the ADA reach new heights, to continue to evolve with the times to better serve members and become the “must have” association for all dentists across the spectrum.
I am committed to helping the ADA lead globally.
